Funeral Held for Odell Branch, 77-Year-Old Chicago Deacon Shot While About to Eat Ice Cream with Grandson



This deacon was about to eat some ice cream with his 5 year-old grandson when a stray bullet came straight through the window and killed him. Odell Branch, 77, was just enjoying life with his dear grandson, he didn't deserve to die before his time.  If there was a strict law against gun ownership, then we wouldn't have much of a problem and no doubt this man would be alive today.

According to ChicagoTribune.com, the service celebrated the life of Odell Branch, killed March 9 after a bullet that crashed through the front double windows of his home hit him in the head, just as he sat down with his 5-year-old great-grandson for chocolate ice cream.

Now, this young kid is going to remember this for the rest of his life.  We need leaders within the black church to take over the streets.  Really, how can any of these rich and famous pastors and TV evangelists preach prosperity while people are constantly getting gunned down in their own homes?  How can they continue to receive tithes and offerings and not focus on controlling our government and taking over gang activity within the streets?
